About
Take in the breathtaking views of the Irish riverscape - lush meadows teeming with wildflowers in the spring or stunning monastic sites in autumn - during this unique experience in the Irish countryside! Meet your host Mary and her husband Jorn at their charming boathouse that traverses the Shannon river. In the summer, you can dock the boat at Carrick-on-Shannon in County Leitrim. Watch the beautiful Irish countryside go by as you sip on a welcome drink and hear stories from your host about life on an Irish barge. You will then join your hosts at their dining table to enjoy a Mediterranean influenced home-cooked Irish meal. Your 4-course meal may include dishes such as local smoked salmon for an appetizer, fresh soup or salad and slow roasted pork belly or lamb accompanied with seasonal vegetables like roasted grapes and figs as your main. Your meal will conclude with a dessert of pavlova, lemon cake or the traditional Bailey’s Irish cream cheesecake.

What to expect

The floating barge travels on the Shannon river system between Enniskillen and Carrick-on-Shannon. Feel free to let Mary know when making your booking which cuisine (Mediterranean influenced or traditional Irish) you prefer! Notes: Between the months of Mar - Oct, Mary's boat is docked in the South in Carrick-on-Shannon. Please reconfirm the exact meeting location with Mary at least three days before your experience as the boat is constantly traversing the river.
